I am looking for two set of component speakers for the custom rear deck I am making and I was thinking about doing custom door panels. I will be selling them as a set (rear deck and door panels) so I want to keep my cost down. That way I won't have to sell them for as much.

Price range? What amount of power do you plan on feeding them? (RMS, not max)

I am not familiar with that brand of speaker. What is it you are going for? Good sound or looks? Or both? I'm assuming from your two choices there that your price range is somewhat low. I would forget about the rear components initially, and get a better quality amp. Amp failure is pretty high, especially for lower quality amps. As for the speakers, I would recommend looking at selections from Pioneer, Kenwood, etc. You will spend more money, but I think you will be more satisfied with the sound as well.

Personally, I would not spend money on rear component speakers; however, this is up to each individual and his/her music tastes. I like my music coming at me from in front of me since that is the way music is intended to played - I only have rear speakers for a little bit of fill and for my rear passengers when present.

If leds are your thing, you can always mount some in/around a speaker after you get them installed.

The thing it isn't for me. I have Audiobahn Component speakers for my are. I am making custom door panels for them. This is for a custom rear deck box, and door panels I am making to put up for sale when I am done. I was thinking I would put in these speakers...
